It’s been proven time and time again that psychometric assessment is far more accurate in determining job performance than traditional hiring methods. However, the demands placed on psychometrics today extend beyond mere reliability and validity, with a huge focused now placed oncandidate and user experience. To address this industry change, Talegent have undertaken two missions. This first is to enhance the usability of assessment results to increase speed and quality of hire, leading to creation of new, interactive reports. Our second mission was to enable users to deepen their pre- and post- hire insights, leading to improved quality of hire, employee development and improve employee NPS, hence the revitalisation of our core competency model.
So, what are these new reporting innovations? The key changes Talegent have made as part of the upgrade are:
Interactivity– a varity of graphs, sortable competencies, values that can be turned on/off.
Comparison of candidates– have a side-by-side score review of multiple candidates in one report.
Simplification of reports– multiple reports have been combined into one single document with expandable and collapsible sections, allowing users to select the specific information they want to see.
Creation of three new reports– a Hiring Manager, Delivering Feedback & Grit reports have been developed.

As for the competency model, this retains its blend of personality and cognitive components, with enhanced post-hire features to ensure applicability throughout the employee lifecycle. Key benefits are:
Post-hire usability–interview questions, development tips, and onboarding guides provided within the reports
Contemporary competencies– assess on behaviours validated to predict performance for your role
Revitalised results interpretation– unlock new insights about your candidates
Organisational alignment– use the competency model in conjunction with Talegent’s Values assessments
Talegent’s competency model contains 23 competencies, which are divided amongst the five clusters seen in the image above.
In summarising the updates, Product ManagerRichard Thwaitenotes: “These new reports will assist our clients in selecting top talent, and leveraging their data as an asset. We have used research and best practice to provide standardized reporting tools for pre- and post-hire, underpinned by a validated competency framework. These changes are designed to simplify the difficult job of hiring for potential and bringing onboard best and brightest.”
